exciting developments!

Sunday night... She slept for 9.5 uninterrupted hours! She cried out a few times, but never fully woke up from 8:30-5:00!!!

Monday morning... she signed "baby" and then "time" to indicate she wanted to watch her "baby signing time" d.v.d.. We put her chair in front of the t.v. and she sat transfixed as we ate our breakfast and did our scripture readings.

And she seems to now echo "diaper" when she actually needs her diaper changed.

And on that front... we bought a potty. She seems to wait until the diaper is opened to relieve herself sometimes. We think it might be time to try...

what kind of potty? i would say it's awfully early, but....i know who her mama is :)

it is early. no intention to pressure. just to introduce and have the option. she seems to have consciousness of her processes now, at least occasionally. i don't know what kind. kev got a simple one with a slide out container, one that converts to a step stool when ready for the big potty. its still in the box. don't worry. we're not rushing things. i hope she's only 50% like her mama in this department.

ps with regard to knitting, i finally finished my first scarf last week (after pulling it out due to adding stitches unintentionally) and it is pretty! will be gifting it to ali for a belated b'day present. i got your knitting book on amazon and hope to try some baby items soon...i love the beautiful color and layout of the book, i just hope i'll be able to follow the instructions. first to get some pillowcase dresses started...and finished! ox
